Re: Something that annoys me from a sound-guy's perspective

Really, the connective tissue between the audience ears and the instrument (obviously mic'ed) is the sound guy/girl (person).

Inside our boxy, boomy, reflective church walls, plus playing a...

Re: Something that annoys me from a sound-guy's perspective

The worst thing (almost as bad as blurring, unattainable playing)...is false power. By that I mean, under-hitting how you're going to play, or over-hitting how you are going to play. I try to give...

Re: A quick bass skin improvisation?!

A medium sized dog or cat?

I'm just kidding...

Re: I am 33. Am I too old to start learning?

Never too late. Ever.

My most humble advice. Whatever you do, do with some balance, meaning, it's good to submerse oneself into a new craft, but don't drown yourself in it either. Frustration...

Re: Little bar gigs with a V-drum TD9?

The latest Yamaha module is p-r-e-t-t-y good as far as preloaded sounds go. A little tweak of some sound shapes and I have a bangin' kit for our church. Now granted, that is a big ole' space that...

Re: Stop ear damage!!

Any protection, even if it's rolled up toilet paper, is better than nothing.

Re: Anyone used Tightscrew tension screws?

Yeah, tighstcrews are the definite, no questions asked fix for loosening lugs. I decided on the need after noticing a lower lug under the snare (on the drum riser floor) as I was tearing down from a...

Re: Pork Pie Big Black Brass = Worldmax Brass Snare

No, i couldn't. I had actually contacted Keith to get a replacement lug casing for my Maryland snare and he discussed options for other snares, sent me as many pics as i asked for, than worked out...

Re: Pork Pie Big Black Brass = Worldmax Brass Snare

I bought mine from keith larsen, who used to run maryland drums, now its Mid Atlantic Drums. He let me buy it with a full return if I didn't like it, to include shipping it back and forth on his...

Re: Pork Pie Big Black Brass = Worldmax Brass Snare

This is my 6.5 x 14 Worldmax brass. Sorry about the crappy pic.
My regular snare has been a Maryland DC, and I needed a deep metal-of-some-variation, so I got a great deal and took it. Sounds like...

Re: What's your favorite sounding rock snare recording?

Gotta be honest, between the band The Outfield and Guns'n'Roses ...great drum sound... made me want to play. The intro to Paradise City...clearly defined an era.

I was always weak for the late...

Re: Performing with the Flu

Tell you the truth, playing a show sick is an easier decision. It's when you're sick and need to write, practice, or do "other" things related...and putting those up against a long day of rest and...

Re: Performing with the Flu

There is a great four part series of vids on youtube of one of Buddy Rich's last interviews..loosley quoting him, he said the show must go on. There is no excuse for not playing. death maybe. But he...

Re: Bad Impressions

I feel pretty blessed to say that I haven't had a bad experience with really any drummers and bad attitudes. All "pro" level drummers I've met or engaged in conversation with have been really humble...

Re: Bobby Blotzer

They were pretty much overlays of the exact same kind of band, same sound, one a little more freaky mystical than the other, but that quintessential ground work rock feel did really get exemplified...

Re: Tagging Drummers that aren't in Videos on Facebook

Agreed. The "tagged" can always "untag" themselves right. Don't you get that option?

Re: Expect band mates to help unload kit

I'm usually satisfied when someone (or multiple people) at least "asks" if there is anything that can be done to help. The very moment I pick up a guitar, amp, bag, merch, whatever...we silently...

Re: arms hurt towards the end of playing a gig.

We build set lists the same way. not only for my playing and rest areas, but for the singer too. I noticed that the frequency of shows and gigs makes a difference too...if it;s been a month since...

Re: I left my band and possibly might quit drums

Sometimes, the best medicine for anything is merely a sabbatical of unknown length.

Good luck in your future endeavors.

Re: New Drummer here

Yes, yamaha booms are good. Gibraltar makes good stands....pretty much the standard thing now is to see the combo straight/boom. I have found that the weak link on stands is that rivet that fixes the...

I didn't say you can't critique. In fact, you (we) should. It keeps our creative differences flowing. Opinions are really the basis of a lot if our creativity...if not all. And that's not just...

Re: How many cymbals have you cracked/broken/split in your drumming lifetime?

A lot. 20-30?

Over 25 some odd years...all in metal, or some kind of ...core bands. In the last 5 years...only two or three. Playing a cracked HHX China cause it still sounds decent.

Re: Billie Jean on steroids

Ha. For a second I was a grooving with the most groove based hook of 1983......and then...I puked.

Note to self, don't call it a tribute if you're not going to do anything but mutilate the song...
